basically armageddon. the white house today focused on even more spending. the obama administration releasing the details of a plan to pump 50 billion more tax dollars into a stimulus-like tag -- package aimed at infrastructure as the president's continues blaming the republican party for the sequestered spin its alleged consequences. white house press secretary jay carney actually mocks congress today for being on recess with a deadline looming, telling republicans there is a very simple solution to this sequestration problem. simply capitulate to the president and the democratic party. >> i don't want to make predictions. i would note that congress is up this week, which says something, i suppose. but the fact of the matter is the march 1st deadline is looming. congress has an option, a very simple option, which is to take up the proposals put forth by senate democrats and house democrats. lou: being very helpful to the republican leaders. the problem with this statement is, there is no democratic proposal. the president has not picked up the phone to even begin to initiate or neg

the armageddon scare tactics coming out of team obama, we took a closer look at the cbo numbers and this big bad budget cut is not -- is just $44 billion. it is not the $85 billion that has been advertised. and you know what, $44 billion compared to our overall budget spending and our gdp is nothing. but many of the mainstream news media are echoing white house scare tactics and one question is whether the gop can take the pressure. there's eight days before the sequester kicks in. can republicans take the pressure? and finally, let's not forget the other big money stories right now, stocks suffer their first day of the year on fears maybe the fed may stop all that money printing. but i think that too is much ado about nothing. help is on the way, the "kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up this evening, president obama continuing to resort to sequester scare tactics, lobbying against those automatic spending cuts that were really his own brain child. take a listen to what he said about the cuts on the day he signed the budget control act back in august 2011. >> this compromise guarantees
example. it shouldn't have been president obama who proposed adopting universal pre-k with a model like the one that's worked so well in oklahoma. oklahoma is a red state. they're using incentives and local partnerships and it's working. y'all should have been all over that. right now the democratic party has a monopoly on ideas for issues ranging from lessening income inequality to dealing with climate change and that lack of competition is not good for anyone. democrats respect forced to innovate and can just sit back and laugh at the lame old gop. just think how the health care law could have been improved if republicans had used an evidence-based approach to improving it rather than closing their eyes, sticking their fingers in their ears and repeating repeal and replace over and over again. we are made worse off and democrats are allowed to be lazy by an opposition that approaches governance as a series of political gimmicks, forced crises and rhetorical devices. we need you, gop. so take a little break from frank luntz, put the reagan quotes aside, forget about all the things that

, if president obama had made any new offers. he wouldn't take the bait, wouldn't answer those questions. republicans this afternoon raising the question of their own, why hasn't president obama reached out to democratic leaders on the hill, but as you point out, martin, this conversation comes against the backdrop of some positive news for president obama. in addition to that number you just sight cited from the usa today/pew poll, there's another part of that poll which shows 51% of americans approve of the job that president obama is doing as compared to 25% who approve of the job republicans are doing. so president obama getting a boost from that poll today certainly during that conversation that he had with congressional leaders. in terms of what's next, two phone calls will be on the horizon, we haven't had any indication. what i can tell you is that president obama will be leaving washington, d.c., taking his message on the road next week when he heads to knew port nene virgin virginia. >> kristin welker at the white house, thanks so much. let's turn to our panel, eddie bernice jo
is to make obama seem reasonable in comparison. after all, the president certainly agrees that boehner that the sequester cuts threaten national security and jobs. the difference is that obama wants to avoid them. could the gop message on the sequester be anymore self defeating? are they hurting the brand in the fight? >> you have to understand the back story. the gop thought they had a winning hand last year, the message would win them back the white house. it didn't work out that way and then they found themselves in a really difficult situation the end of the year facing tax increases across the board, obama had the upper hand there and they caved in a way that was incredibly painful for them. and so they looking coming out of january, they made the decision that they would rather stand and fight on the sequester than the debt ceiling. fight on the sequester to say in nine days that they have wrangled, you know, a significant amount of cuts out of the obama administration, an administration they say doesn't want to cut spending and then going to the cr, that's the washington speak f
